Internet Scandal

Vela found herself in an internet phenomenon, where millions were convinced that she was dead! It all began when a short film, disguised as live footage, was released online. In the video, Vela was hit by a car and killed. Fans went to social media in shock, wondering if the woman in the video, later identified as Vela, was actually dead. So, she responded on Twitter and Facebook to refute the claims. “I did get some backlash,” she told a Latin entertainment site. “But mainly from people who didn’t realize it was a short film.”

It is clear Vela is very much alive and enjoying her relationship with Sutherland. Now that they are officially public about their relationship, you can expect some more attention coming their way for a while!
